Please find below a small part of the Q & A's that deal exclusively with transfers and corrections.
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. 

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. 

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-directrelatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor.  Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

Sixkiller Cemetery
Sixkiller Cemetery is not located at Afton, Ottawa County, Oklahoma. It is actually located approximately 1/4 mile south of the Ottawa-Delaware County line at Bernice, Delaware County, Oklahoma. You may want to edit your memorials to show the correct location.

Hi Abby,

I see you have created a Find A Grave for my Allison cousin.
Brad and Lyn have posted photos of the cemetery stone on the site you created. I would appreciate you transferring your memorial to me so I can complete my family tree. Find A Grave #37483713 is Maurine's Find A Grave that I created years ago when putting all my Allison family on this site. You will see that I have sponsored her memorial along with all her family if you care to look into My Allison Family Tree.
Thank you.

Phillip Smith's memorial
Dear Abby, I am just sending a note about edits I sent on Dec. 9th on Phillip Smith's memorial(Find A Grave#52241954). He married one of my Smoot relatives so he was included in my research.
Hope you had a nice holiday and thanks again for all you do.

Carl Vincent Boone Memorial
I posted a photograph of Dad on Memorial #30063726 today. I became a Find A Grave Contributor about seven years ago, and am now updating all of my Find A Grave family information and pictures. I would appreciate you transferring this memorial to me. I do not want to post my ID number here, but will be please to send it in an email to you. I would like to post his obituary, and a number of photographs as soon as possible, but will wait until you decide on the transfer. My email address is
